Sweet thrift finds and hot summer days | Dearest Lou

Sweet thrift finds and hot summer days

Monday was unbelievably hot, I don't want to even think about how hot the weather is going to be in June and July. The only thing that sounds appealing on a hot day is going to the pool and swimming. I'm thinking that Daryl and I will be doing that a lot this summer. Daryl and I went on a date today and this is the outfit I wore. Didn't want to wear something too fancy but couldn't imagine wearing a ton of layers or pants. Decided to wear my ol' reliable shorts, new thrifted shoes, and thrifted top. These are two of the items I scored when I went thrifting with Mimi and Karen last weekend! I've been looking for shoes like this for A G E S so when I finally stumbled upon these bad boys it was love at first site. ;P

I also want to thank those of you who linked up to Thrifty Thursdays last week you guys found some amazing stuff, I'm jealous!

  41. Hi Lou! I love your idea of blogging about thrifted clothes! I am a thrift fanatic too! Most of my clothes are from thrifted stores because I believe that it isn't on the brand that you wear but it is on how you put it up together and create your own style! I love your idea Lou! Thanks! You gave me an inspiration! And I will be posting about my thrifted clothes soon! Ciao! xx

    Lots of love,
    Ella ♥
